1. Can the Baltimore Ravens use this week to get Ronnie Stanley healthy? 

This has not been the season that Ronnie Stanley envisioned by any stretch. He has struggled to stay healthy, and when he has been able to get on the field, he has looked like a much weaker version of his old self. 

After the Ravens bye week, he has yet to complete a full game in an effort to keep him fresh, healthy, and playing his best football. He played 80.6% against the Rams, 68.6% against the Jaguars, 85.3% against the 49ers, and 70.2% against the Dolphins. 

Still, this means now is the perfect time to sit him and potentially get him to play 100% of the snaps when the playoffs come. He has been pushing through a knee injury. Just like Kyle Hamilton, he can now sit out this week and next week. For Stanley, that gives him a two-week grace period.

It also means that the last time he played over 60 snaps in a game would have been November 26th, nearly two months before he may be asked to play 60 snaps for three games in four weeks. Considering Morgan Moses has been on the same pitch count, he is likely to miss this game as well.
